Taking the advice of my BHLDN stylist, I tried on this dress last at my Beverly Hills appointment. This and the Joss were my top two picks. I had pulled about 5 other dresses to try on and my stylist suggested that my top picks should be tried on last as it most likely will be the Wow factor if I was already feeling lukewarm about the others. I brought my best friend and sister to give their opinions. My stylist was right. I tried on the Leila dress last and never had I seen their faces lit up. Their facial expressions were dead giveaways on what they thought about each dress that I didnâ??t even have to ask. It was clear which dress sparkled while the others did not. I was banking on the Joss, but it was the Leila that they could imagine me getting married in. The material was very comfortable. I wasnâ??t initially crazy about how it trumpets at the bottom like a mermaid, but it actually looked pretty awesome. Iâ??m very petite, a size zero, standing at 5 feet, so I was concerned that it would look too Cinderella-ish since it flares out at the bottom, but this dress looked pretty awesome. Very satisfied and happy. It will need a few alterations at the bottom since Iâ??m a shortie, but otherwise, very happy.

I like that this dress has a nice ivory color with gold details. White looks bad on me so I think the color is very flattering. The fit was bigger than I expected. The size chart put me at a size 12 because of my hip measurement, but I ordered a size 10 because another Jenny Yoo dress in size 10 was huge on me. This dress in size 10 fit my hips fine, but it is large everywhere else. I am usually not a fan of mermaid silhouettes but this one is soft and more like a fit-and-flare. Material is a good quality. Maybe not worth the original 2400 price tag, but good now that it's on sale. I think this dress will look flattering once I have the waist and back taken in.

I had my eye on this dress for several months and finally booked an appointment when it went on sale. I was not disappointed. This dress is very beautiful in person, with gold thread embroidery incorporated into the lace, which from a distance blends into the dress to give it a lovely warm ivory color that really flatters my skin tone. The shape looked great on my curvy figure. I love the sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves and the back is amazing and dramatic. Everything I wanted in a dress!
The sizing chart put me as a size 12. I tried on the size 10 at the salon and it was just a little tight, so the dress seems to be pretty true to size. I had a wonderful experience at the salon and can't wait to wear this dress!
